Things to do for September 29, 2011

The Weekender

Pizza, a New Date Spot and Sake. So Much Sake...

The weekend also responds to the name Mr. October.

Thursday
A Pizza Smackdown in the West Village
MOBILE ME

A Pizza Smackdown in the West Village

Tonight, it’s going down, Neapolitan-style, in the West Village. The holy trinity of mobile pizza kitchens—Cavalli Pizzeria, Il Cane Rosso and Urban Crust—are firing up their mobile ovens and letting you vote for the best slice in Dallas. Consider the vino a bribe.

Your New North Dallas Date Spot
ITALIANO

Your New North Dallas Date Spot

Let’s address your north Dallas Italian date spots... okay, that was fun. Well, good news: the guys from Sfuzzi are bringing you Princi Italia, a cozy Tuscan-style spot off Royal. You’ll grab a table by the massive wall of wine and order up Chicken Meatballs. The chicken-fried steak of Italy.

Saturday
Racing Around the Speedway
DAYS OF THUNDER

Racing Around the Speedway

Warning: there’ll be over 1,500 custom cars, classic cars and hot rods at the Speedway this weekend. This could result in you (and your racing gloves) renting an official NASCAR stock car and racing it around the track. Watch out for police officers who resemble Nicole Kidman.

Sunday
Seven Courses. Five Sakes. Go.
SAKE BOMB

Seven Courses. Five Sakes. Go.

We can all agree: you could always use more sake. Related: Tei-An is hosting a seven-course meal that’s drowning in the stuff. As they bring you plates of sashimi and gibier (wild game), you’ll sip on five different sakes from Tohoku. It’s the Napa of sake, we assume.

Oct 2, 7-9pm, $100, Tei-An, 1722 Routh St, 214-220-2828

Tuesday
A Late-Night Brunch Worthy of Santa
DECK THE HALLS

A Late-Night Brunch Worthy of Santa

You’ve always said two things about brunch: it should be served at 2am and come with eggnog. Café Brazil agrees—their new holiday brunch menu’s available 24/7, and includes pumpkin pancakes, eggnog french toast and s’mores hot chocolate. ’Tis the season...

Starting Oct 4, Café Brazil, 6420 N Central Expy, 214-691-7791
